This Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff recipe is a budget-friendly version of the classic dish. In this case, it’s a one-pot pasta and ground beef dish cooked at the same time with mushrooms and onions, then finished with sour cream and fresh parsley. 


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, finely diced

1 lb /450 g lean ground beef (90-95% lean, ideal for this particular recipe)

½ teaspoon salt

9 oz / 250 g mushrooms, sliced 

2 garlic cloves, minced or diced

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

½ teaspoon pepper 

2 cups beef broth/stock

1 cup water

230-250 g / 8-9 ounces wide egg noodles or fusilli pasta

To finish: 

2 tablespoons plain flour 

1 cup sour cream 

Salt to taste 

Fresh parsley 


  • Turn Instant Pot to Saute mode. Once the pot is hot, add the olive oil and onions. Cook for 2 minutes to soften, stirring a couple of times.
  • Add the ground beef and ½ tsp salt. Press the Saute function again to cycle to More mode (hotter setting). Brown the meat, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks, for about 3-4 minutes. 
  • Add garlic, sliced mushrooms, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir through. Press Cancel to stop the Saute. 
  • Add the pasta, followed by 2 cups of beef broth and 1 cup of water. The pasta should be just barely covered by liquid. Stir everything through one more time, scraping the bottom to remove any stuck bits. 
  • Secure the lid and set the Instant Pot to High Pressure for 4 minutes. Once done, leave on natural release for 5 minutes and then use the quick release. 
  • Open the lid and stir the pasta. If it looks like there is still quite a bit of liquid inside, tip some of it out. We want a little bit for the sauce but not too much as we’ll be adding the cream. 
  • Whisk 2 tablespoons of flour with 4-5 tablespoons of water and stir into the pasta sauce while it’s hot. It will thicken the liquid. 
  • Finally, add the sour cream and stir. Garnish with some fresh parsley and extra pepper.
